Lucy Gordon was born in England. She wanted to be a writer all her life, andbegan by working on a British women's magazine. As a features writer, shegained a wide variety of experience. She interviewed some of the world'smost attractive and interesting men, including Warren Beatty, RichardChamberlain, Charlton Heston, Sir Roger Moore, Sir Alec Guiness.

Single life was so enjoyable that she put marriage, and even romance, on theback burner, while she went about the world having a great time. Then, whileon vacation in Venice, she met a tall, dark handsome Venetian artist, whochanged all her ideas in a moment, and proposed on the second day. Threemonths later they were married. Her friends said a whirlwind romance wouldnever last, but they celebrated their 25 anniversary, they are stillmarried, still happy and in love.

After 13 years on the magazine Lucy decided that it was now or never if shewas ever going to write that novel. So she wrote Legacy of Fire which becamea Silhouette Special Edition, followed by another, Enchantment in Venice.Then she did something crazy gave up her job. Since then she hasconcentrated entirely on writing romances for Mills & Boon, Harlequin andSilhouette and has written over 75 books. Her settings have been Europeanand her heroes mainly English or Italian. Lucy now claims to be an expert onone particular subject. Italian men are the most romantic in the world. Theyare also the best cooks.

A few years ago she and her husband returned to Venice and lived there for acouple of years. This proved the perfect base for exploring the rest ofItaly, and she has given many of her books Italian settings: Venice (ofcourse), Rome, Florence, Milan, Sicily, Tuscany. She has also used the Rhinein Germany for Song of the Lorelei, for which she won her first RITA Award,in 1991. Her second RITA came in 1998, with His Brother's Child, set inRome.

Eventually Lucy and her husband returned to England, where they now live.She write and he paints, they have no children, but have a cat and a dog.
